That's what I was thinking, since I knew that ZIV TV was sold to or swallowed up by UA around 1960-ish. And that would include everything produced by ZIV, unless it didn't have a valid copyright notice in the first place. Which may or may not explain that one Science Fiction Theatre episode released in a PD collection by TV Guide/Genius a few years ago. (The SFT episode title is "The Strange Lodger", and if that's still under copyright, then TV Guide did a no-no!)

Most of their 50s originating series have the odd episode that's PD. There are a couple of "Bat Masterson", "Martin Kane", "Corliss Archer", and the first 2 seasons of "Cisco Kid" that weren't renewed. And a few other random examples.

It's been the DVD age, where the one or two episodes per tape standard of the vhs age is just not good enough, that's lead to the 10 disc entire series DVDR sets of these shows from bootleggers on Amazon, etc.
